I became a NAPAHE member in 2008 and attended my first conference in 2009. NAPAHE membership affords me an opportunity to build relationships with my colleagues in higher education. These are the people who understand what I do and speak the same language as me. My NAPAHE membership has been an integral part of my professional growth as a Presidential Assistant. I love having the opportunity to exchange ideas with other PAs in a confidential environment; sharing stories, ideas and solutions through NAPANET and the annual conference. The friendships and connections I have made through NAPAHE are invaluable.
